Bangalore, Karnataka, India, 2009/06/08 - Certification conferred by BSI India, the subsidiary of the British Standards Institute.
Frontier Business Systems, a leading IT Infrastructure Solutions and Services company, has announced that it has achieved ISO 27001 certification for its ‘Green Data Center’, housed within its new Green IT Facility at Bangalore, India. The ISO 27001 certification, conferred by BSI India, the subsidiary of the British Standards Institute, establishes that Frontier’s services and security management adheres to the highest standards in the world.
Ravi Verdes, Founder and Director of Frontier Business Systems, said “We are delighted to have attained this prestigious certification, which endorses our constant commitment to safeguard the trust and confidence that our costumers place on us. With the ISO 27001 certification, the efficacy of our information security practices stands vindicated and would further give confidence to our customers that their data is safe and secure within the company.”
“We realized the necessity of Frontier to create a structured management system for securing its information & assets. The management structure for security becomes a must as more and more information and information resources are shared between the company and the customer in today’s business models. We decided to implement the ISO 27001 standard soon after moving to our new Green IT Facility at Bangalore in February 2009. The implementation was done by Frontier’s Internal Information Security Consulting Team and completed in a record time of 3 months.” added Ravi Verdes.
Frontier is expanding at a rapid pace in India, having recently set up a new state-of-the-art ‘Green’ facility in the heart of Bangalore, at an estimated investment of US$ 4 Million. This facility showcases Frontier’s Green Virtualization Solutions enabling enterprises to drastically reduce cost, while improving business service availability, agility and performance. This is also possibly the first Green IT Facility in India which also has a ‘Green Data Center’.
The new Bangalore facility scores high in key environmental categories like Indoor Air Quality, Energy and Water efficiency. Frontier has applied for and hopes to shortly achieve a GOLD Certification from LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) for Commercial Interiors (CI) from the US Green Building Council (USGBC) for this facility.
Frontier is one of the leading IT systems integrators and services provider organization in the country with an employee strength of over 550 across multiple locations in India and revenues exceeding Rs.200 Crores (US$ 37 million) – as on March 2008.
